Jonathan Papelbon done for season due to suspensions
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon has dropped his appeal of a three-game suspension from the MLB. He also has been suspended four games by the Nationals for his role in a dugout scuffle Sunday with Bryce Harper, effectively ending his 2015 season.

Papelbon will finish the 2015 season having converted 24 saves between the Nationals and Phillies. He also compiled a 2.13 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 56 strikeouts in 63 1/3 innings.

He remains under contract through 2016, but the club has yet to decide whether he'll be back as the closer again next season or whether they will part ways with him over the winter.

Nationals' Jonathan Papelbon, Bryce Harper involved in altercation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Jonathan Papelbon was involved in a dugout altercation with teammate Bryce Harper during Sunday's loss to the Phillies, The Washington Post reports. 

The incident overshadowed the result of what was ultimately a meaningless game after the Nationals were eliminated from playoff contention Saturday.

Papelbon appeared to be displeased with Harper slowly jogging out an infield ground ball in the eighth inning, and he confronted Harper in the dugout following the at-bat. Shouting quickly escalated into a physical altercation, as Papelbon grabbed Harper's neck before the pair were rushed by teammates and separated. W

hile Harper was removed from the game and replaced in the field for the final inning, Papelbon was on the mound in the ninth inning. He gave up a two-run home run to Andres Blanco and was charged with five of Philadelphia's eight runs in the final frame.

Papelbon is currently appealing a three-game ban for hitting Baltimore's Manny Machado earlier in the week, and it remains to be seen whether he'll be disciplined internally following Sunday's dustup.

Report: Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon to fight suspension
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon was given a three-game suspension and a fine for hitting Manny Machado with a pitch, but will appeal the suspension, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports.

The veteran closer maintained after the game the plunk was unintentional and that he didn't agree with his ejection, so it makes sense he'll dispute the decision. Since he's appealing, the suspension won't go into effect Friday, but it will be served next week if upheld.

Nationals RP Jonathan Papelbon rebounds Saturday for 24th save
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon gave up two hits in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to notch his 24th save of the season.

He'd been scored upon in four straight appearances and blown two straight saves coming into Saturday, so even if Papelbon wasn't overpowering, he'll take it. The Nats don't exactly have any other obvious candidates to close with Drew Storen (thumb) out of action, so it would probably take a complete meltdown for Papelbon to lose his spot as the closer.

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon blows save on Friday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon took a blown save, allowing one run (unearned) on one hit while striking out a pair in his inning of work.

Papelbon hadn't blown a save all year, and has now blown two in a row, albeit this one wasn't completely his fault. He allowed a double to Miguel Rojas who advanced to third on a throwing error by Bryce Harper, and would later score on a sacrifice fly making the run unearned. The Nationals came back to win the game in 10 innings, so no harm done, and Papelbon should be fine going forward.
